Hi Dr. W here. I.m sorry to hear that. Is she still eating?

It could be that she is impacted (constipated) or because she is not eating. Either case is bad for a guinea pig. If there is fecal matter caked on her anus forming a plug, you need to remove it. If she isn't eating she needs to go to a vet right away because that would be very serious for a guinea pig.
